Question

Hi, first question on the forum.

Followed the install process for dyndolod 2.98, using vortex and ran loot once the load order conflicts had been resolved.

Got a single, worrying error from loot:

# Overwrite.esl

- CRC: 03E1DF5C
- Attributes: Master Plugin, Light Plugin

## Messages

- Error: This plugin contains records that have FormIDs outside the valid range for an ESL plugin\. Using this plugin will cause irreversible damage to your game saves\.

I searched the manual and the forums and couldn't find anything looking like this. Has anyone come across this and if so what is the fix?

I haven't run the game since seeing this error as I'm already a couple of hundred hours into playing and don't want to lose my save files.

Many thanks

GBT

You did not follow the installation instructions and installed the DynDOLOD Standalone into the data folder/as a mod or you installed files from in the sub folder ..\Docs\SkyrimSELargeRefGrid\Data\  - which are part of a bug report example - into the data folder / as a mod. There are no such instructions anywhere to do so.

Really read the installation instructions. From DynDOLOD_QuickStart.html:

From the DynDOLOD Standalone archive copy the content of the 'DynDOLOD' folder, which contains the files DynDOLOD.exe, TexGen.exe, DynDOLOD_QuickStart.html and the sub folders 'Docs' and 'Edit Scripts' with all their content into a new 'DynDOLOD' folder outside of special OS folders like 'Programs Files' or 'Program Files (x86)', the SteamApps or game folders and Mod Organizers virtual file structure. Do not mix with old versions or xEdit/xLODGen installation.

This implies to not install the tools as a mod since the tools - programs and their data files -  are not a mod.

Hi Sheson

You absolute star (and great person of ultimate patience) :bow:.

I missed the fact that vortex was set to auto install/enable and deploy downloaded files so even though I then followed the instructions it had already done the dirty and installed the downloaded file as well.

I've now disabled the auto-installed files (and disabled auto install/enable in vortex) leaving just the manually created files your instructions shows how to process and surprise - no errors.

 

Thanks for the really fast response.

      ENB makes my character's skin look really really pale and kind of makes the entire game look cold.  Which settings would I be looking at to make the colors a little warmer?

      I see in the guide it says to install LW dawnbreaker with dwarven/dwemer sheath but for the enb light installation instructions is says to choose default dawnbraker sheath and not alt sheath...I was just wondering why that may be.

      The vanilla cotton plant is modeled somewhat after a flowering commercial cotton plant: Google Images of cotton plants
      Herbalist's Guide to Skyrim depicts it after the tundra cotton plant, which is more like a grass. Google Images of tundra cotton
      This mod blends the two, giving it the leaves of a commercial cotton plant and the flower of a tundra cotton plant.
      I consider this a significant deviation from vanilla, so I would not recommend for Step, but it looks fantastic.

      Vanilla --> Cathedral Plants --> Hybrid's HD Plants --> Cathedral - 3D Tundra Cotton
